It’s the happiest time of the year for the thrill of the grill. Some 64.4% of Americans will grill out this weekend. According to the 22nd Weber Grill Watch Survey, those who are grilling say Independence Day remains their favorite grilling holiday at 81 percent, followed by birthdays at 67 percent, Labor Day at 66 percent, and Memorial Day (61 percent). Father’s Day is fifth this year at 48 percent.
Girls, Get Your Grill On!
Men are still the primary griller in most US households (61 percent) with 20 percent of households reporting that it’s a shared responsibility among men and women. Of course, that means that the women are inside stirring up the potato salad, baked beans and flag cake. And what are we grilling? Hamburgers (69 percent), Steak (46 percent), Chicken pieces (42 percent), Hot dogs (39 percent) and Ribs (17 percent).
